Safety reminders offered as increase of moving is expected in coming weeks

Limiting groups may help prevent the spread of COVID-19

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Plenty of people will be moving in the coming weeks, so the La Crosse County Health Department is offering some reminders.

While college students aren’t on campus, many do still live off-campus, but away from home.

As those students and others prepare to move, they should limit the number of people helping.

And ahead of packing up, keep shopping trips to a minimum to limit the number of stores.

Community members can also help by avoiding high traffic areas, like hardware stores and neighborhoods with high amounts of student housing.

Shoppers should also consider not stopping at stores during peak times.

And fabric face coverings should be warn when moving and while out in the community.
